Swine Wala Flue..

Being in Pune is thrilling these days,thanx to 'Swine Wala Flue'. Every morning, newspapers comeup with a news item that presents a picture grimmer than yesterday.
All of a sudden the pandemic is so near. Just heard the news that 3 'Swine Flue Suspects' have been detained(read quarrantined) in the nearby building.
The good news is,it is totally curable.The bad news,it is highly contagious and spreads like anything.
Below is a bit of do's and dont's to avoid this pandemic :


 Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, tissue in the trash after you use it. Use disposable masks in airports, crowded markets.
 Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.
 Use alcohol based hand cleaners (e.g: Germ Free).
 Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
 Always maintain high levels of personal hygiene, especially before and after food preparation and in & out of toilets.
 If you are sick, PLEASE stay at home and limit contact with others as much as possible.
 While in an affected region, seek immediate medical attention if you develop influenza ike symptoms. (High Fever, body pain, coughing and red nose)
 Get plenty of sleep, rest and take plenty of liquids
 Drink plenty of water and eat nutritious food


× Touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way
× Visits live animal markets, poultry and pig farms in affected countries
× Shake hands or hug in greeting.
× Spit in public.
× Take medicines without consulting a physician
× Forget to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
× Neglect yourself and seek medical advice if needed
